I ordered a pad thai and there's nothing to praise about it, and doesn't taste like pad thai at all. It lacks the "Thai" taste on it, no crushed peanuts and few pieces of shrimp on it (3 pcs) for a very pricey food. My husband ordered a lemongrass chicken that tasted more like a curried chicken than lemongrass. Very... More

Average service, average food, we ate several times there because it was our first option at the hotel (Marriott), beautiful scenery by the pool. Over priced if compared with Duke's which is so close by. We had the crab and prime roast dinner and it was really good, US50 per person.

Kukui's Restaurant is on the grounds of the Marriott Kauai resort. It's an open air style restaurant. You can choose to be covered by a big table umbrella or under a roof. Either way there is plenty of fresh air. The staff was attentive and courteous. The food was excellent. I ate there 5 times and each meal was excellent.... More

Not usually a fan of buffets. BUT. This was excellent. The prime rib was medium rare and delish served w au juice and horsie cream sauce. Wonderful! Great seasoning too. King crab excellent.

Good brunch, and love the convenience of having restaurants on resort property of Marriott Kauai Beach Club. Only complaint is that it is not open for lunch, and closes too early for breakfast.

We went for Christmas Eve when they had a special buffet menu. $60 per person, while not inexpensive it seemed reasonable for what we received. Wide variety of excellent food. We hear their normal buffet excellent too. One of our best dinners on Kauai.

We celebrated Christmas dinner here and had an excellent prime rib buffet with turkey, lamb sliders, all the fixings and desserts. It was delicious! We sat pool side and enjoyed the atmosphere and food. We have eaten here before and always love the prime rib. Highly recommend

Made this our lunch stop one day and were not disappointed. Great selection of reasonable priced items. Service was quite good. Glad we made the choice to stop there as we were exploring the island.

During our week we ate here several times mostly for breakfast and a dinner. Food was ok, good portions and has a decent pool/beach view. Our service was good, but we observed other servers that were slower than island time and had frustrated customers. It’s a good option for staying at the resort.

Great Caesar salad. Fast and reasonably priced. Quiet late at night and no line up when Dukes is lined up for half an hour.
